A Dork's Guide to New York Nightlife

The end of an era is marked tonight as music encyclopedia, epicurious world traveler and tattooed dancing machine with a heart of gold Cowboy Mark bids farewell to both his 20s and to New York City: "I thought it fitting to end my ten years in NYC at the one venue that more or less started all of this... Lit [93 2nd Ave. at 5th St.] It's my 30th birthday, ten year anv in NYC and my going away party. All great reasons to have a party. Lets dance!" Joining Mark in Lit's stone bunker of a DJ booth tonight will be Brett Burton, Kim Ann, Dirty Jean and DJ Unknown. (For those wondering, Mark is moving to Canada to open a poutine stand and pursue a career in taxidermy.)

Thursday night at Loloita Bar [266 Broome at Allen] is a book party for When I Was a Loser: True Stories of (Barely) Surviving High School. There will be prizes for dorky yearbook photos, nerd trivia, and short readings from the book by contributors, plus an exclusive DJ set from our good friend Maxx Klaxon. (Also, don't miss Maxx at Galapagos Art Space this Sunday for the Splice 1 Year Anniversary Party.)
